The above photgraph was taken on 31 December 2011 at the media presentation of Allchin RR 1131, following the completion of the National Lottery "The People's Millions" funded restoration, at Pitsford and Brampton Station on the Northampton and Lamport Railway.

Considering the magnitude of the project the completion on time despite the many setbacks and the condition of most components, plus the research, drawing and production of the missing components, can only be highly commended. The new tender and bare boiler was returned from the Hunslet Engine Co. works leaving only a few weeks for the re-assembly, bearing fitting and repainting etc. in time for the committed "end of the year" deadline the team had publicised.

Congratulations to the whole team involved in the restoration.
